DON’T OVERPACK

Don’t overpack because you will regret it. Use this list as a guide and think carefully about which items you really need on your trip. Don’t be ashamed when you realise you overpacked for your first trip, this happens to everyone. A rule of thumb to keep in mind is that your backpack should never be heavier than 25% of your body weight. Don’t worry though, because the more you travel, the better you’ll get at packing. 

PACKING TIPS

Besides choosing what you want to put in your backpack, packing your backpack properly is a form of art too. Organise your backpack using packing cubes or bags. Roll up your clothes to save space. Distribute the weight of your items by packing heavy things like your shoes and toiletries in the middle of your backpack against your back. This way you won’t get off your shoulders and back as quickly.
